Overview

The Comprehensible Midwest Conference empowers teachers to create joyful, personalized, effective and equitable language acquisition through instruction based on comprehensible input. As a collaborative community, we safely support teachers to connect with each other and to teach in ways that respond to students' cultural and linguistic identities. Every year we bring in some of the nation’s foremost trainers in teaching with comprehensible input while simultaneously lifting up and supporting the voices of local and regional teachers who are striving to make their language instruction more personalized, inclusive and equitable.

Target Audience

Any teacher of a world language, regardless of context, who wishes to increase engagement, joy and effectiveness of their teaching environment could benefit from attending Comprehensible Midwest. If you believe that each of your students can acquire language and want to learn how to increase retention over time and overall achievement, developing real and measurable fluency, then this conference is for you.
